Rich, fruity, satisfying Zin, with perhaps a bit less stuffing than some previous Estate Zins we have tasted. Possibly more of the powerful stuff is going into their single-vineyard Zins? Dark cherry and ripe plum in the flavors along with a touch of licorice. Balanced oak and spice. Acids nicely frame the flavors. Not especially long, but forward, delicious and a lot more pleasurable than many Zins that cost a lot more. - WB Team 2002-07-14
